NorthShoreAlert, a mass communication system for the peninsula, has updated the list of streets required to evacuate Saturday by 5 p.m. per County Executive Ed Mangano. NorthShoreAlert has also provided some additional hurricane safety information.
On Friday, Mangano ordered the evacuation for those residents in low-lying areas that are 10 feet above sea-level or less, or in homes in storm surge areas.
With some residents unclear as to their homes' elevation, NorthShoreAlert points to http://veloroutes.org/elevation/, a reference tool. However, because NorthShoreAlert has "no way to confirm its accuracy, use it with discretion/caution," the latest message stated.
Manhasset High School is now open as a shelter, and is expected to open as a shelter at noon, according to NorthShoreAlert.
"Just because your home isn't on this list does not mean that it is not at risk – it could be," the NorthShoreAlert message stated. Conversely, not all homes on the listed streets are necessarily at risk. So please use these lists merely as an assist in making a decision. Ultimately, this is a decision that you need to assess.
